Hartwig Law Firm
The lead and founding attorney at Hartwig Law Firm, Patrick Hartwig has a record of positive outcomes in SSDI and SSI cases. His favorite aspect of his practice is working directly with his clients, counselling them personally, and helping them to get the benefits they deserve.
In his years working in the field of Social Security disability, Mr. Hartwig has managed an active caseload of up to 500 cases at a time, and has trained and supervised over a dozen new lawyers and paralegals just starting out. As an attorney, he has represented clients at over 600 hearings before Administrative Law Judges throughout Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont. He has extensive experience in cross-examining medical and vocational experts in Social Security hearings, and has personally reviewed over 300,000 pages of medical records. This experience has given him a nuanced understanding of the objective medical evidence that meets Social Security’s definition of disability. Moreover, he knows the most effective ways to highlight that information for the decision makers.
When the time comes to appear before a Social Security judge, Mr. Hartwig is fully prepared, having spent many hours reviewing the entire Social Security file for his client. He submits a case summary memorandum to the judge prior to the hearing so that the judge has a clear roadmap to the case, as well as an outline of the legal arguments in support of an award of SSDI benefits.
At Hartwig Law Firm, personalized service begins with the first phone call, where you can expect to receive a free, comprehensive, one-on-one disability evaluation. Mr. Hartwig will complete the online application with you for your SSDI claim, and will work with you prior to the hearing date, walking you through every detail of what to expect at the hearing so you are confident and prepared. At your hearing, he will passionately advocate on your behalf, and once you are awarded benefits, he will guide you through the daunting benefits process.
In cases of a denial by the judge, Mr. Hartwig has experience in appeals through the Appeals Council, and has appeared before the United States District Court on behalf of his Social Security clients.
